From the preface of the document:

Following the initiative of the Hintalovon Child Rights Foundation and its student volunteers, the Child Rights Ambassadors, Hungary's first children's report on
the situation of children's rights has been prepared to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
From the November of 2018 to the March of 2019, nearly 5,300 children commented on their situation in Hungary. Their goal was to make the Committee look at their side while examining the situation of children in the country. They shared their experiences through 7 topics in an online questionnaire and focus group discussions. The report focused on children's views and feelings, which, while not equal to their rights, are equally important when judging them.

Children in the survey said they are most concerned about education and its quality, i.e. that they learn useful and relevant things. Their second most important issue was their involvement in decisions that concern them. The third one was acceptance and equal treatment.

The full report is available in English.
